Often referred to as head handkerchief, turban, head tie or headscarf, the head wrap is an accessory commonly used by every Black woman. Present in many African nations, it’s only following the Great Recession that the use of head wraps resurged in the States, making it one of the most fashionable accessories in the African diaspora.
